The first problem I would expect is the difference in the bell housing between the diesel and petrol engines . This may require an expensive adaptor plate . Next thing I would expect problems would be the ECM being different with more sensors needed for the petrol motor. Basically all the rest will be general engineering problems that can be overcome with parts or a grinder and welder.

If you have an automatic transmission on your truck, i would be guessing that the clutch pack for the overdrive is worn out, as in an automatic tranny, you usually have 2 seprate sets of clutch packs, one for the normal drive gears and one for the overdrive gears. Although getting a tranny opened up for any reason will be pretty costly if you have a mechanic do it for you, and if you are not already trained to tweak inside an automatic tranny, i suggest you do not do it yourself, as it is very complicated and delicate. So before you spend a wad of money, always start with checking the transmission fluid level in the tranny, as missing some oil in there will sometimes cause pretty weird and unexpected results. So if the levels are good and everything that has to do with to oil is OK, as I said, probably the overdrive clutch pack that needs to be replaced, and hoping it is not the solenoid bodies that are defective, cause if that is the case, then it will cost about as much to repair the tranny then to buy a new one.

I dont think you got ripped, that actually sounds on par for a major service for a 6.0 diesel, it does have an external filter however ford recommends trans service + filter change every 30K
